Pentagon changes regulations: homosexuality no longer a mental disorder

Great news passed along from Steve Ralls of SLDN‘s blog, Frontlines.

We’ve just learned that the Pentagon has updated the much talked about instruction, listing homosexuality as a mental disorder, to be current with all other Department of Defense regulations (which had adopted the right view of the situtation years ago). The instruction will now reflect, along with all other Pentagon materials, the APA-accepted stance, adopted in 1973, that lesbian, gay & bisexual orientation is decidedly not a mental disorder.

Expect a fundie eruption shortly.

UPDATE: PageOneQ has more details.

NOTE: SLDN’s executive director, C. Dixon Osburn, will be on Democracy Now, live at 8AM on Thursday.
